Context and justification of the training

However, the commitments made by all countries since the Paris Agreement on climate change and the international standards that are emerging in terms of social responsibility, in particular to access the European market, are encouraging all business and investor support organisations to equip themselves with tools to monitor the impact of investment projects.

Monitoring the impact of investments refers to a process of evaluating investments or portfolios based on their sustainability and impact on the environment, society, and economy, thus aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals and Corporate Sustainability Strategies.

Globally, several initiatives invite companies and organisations in improving their impact based on voluntary approaches referring to broad objectives: the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, the Green House Gas emissions targets of the Paris Agreement, the Montreal Agreement on biodiversity or the Responsible Business Conduct guidelines of the OECD, the latter being focuses on enterprises.

The ANIMA Investment Network, with the support of the EU and the Union for the Mediterranean, has developed an Impact Rating methodology for business and investment support organisations to score the local impacts of investment projects as regards to sustainable development and corporate sustainability, in order to improve their understanding of the projects strengths and weaknesses and adapt their support to the investors.
